Workshop
"One Foot in the Air:  an hour of singing together

What do you sing when you sing what you love?   Are you interested in that "moment of transcendence" when personal style blossoms into a new field of choices?
Each day for 5 days, we will sing together, intensely, timelessly —  with body, vocal chords, mind and fantasy engaged and entwined.
Through work on the "moment of solo", delicate duos, the pleasures of surprise, and the joys of a split-personality, this workshop brings our voices into play, for one hour, without words, each day.

Target group
Open to singers-performers in all areas.
Performance experience is necessary (not for beginners)! 
Maximum: 18 participants
1 hour each day for 5 days
